  • And ignore the myths – we’ve heard a few!
  • “I need to be a recent graduate” Not true! There is no graduation time limit.
  • “I need to be a young graduate” Not true! There is no applicant age limit.
  • “I need to have a medical qualification” Not true! You need a 2:2 in any subject.
  • “I can only apply once” Not true! Some of our trainees made several attempts before they were successful; we salute their grit and determination.

So…what’s stopping you?

You need at least a 2:2 (in any subject), and the passion, energy, commitment and confidence to lead in the NHS in Scotland. This year, there are six posts: four in General Management and two in Finance Management.

General Management Trainees
